The Social Network Moves Ahead To October 1st

I never thought I'd be interested in a film about the founding of Facebook — but when you have Aaron Sorkin writing the screenplay and David Fincher directing, how could I not be intrigued? Now we've learned that it's coming two weeks sooner. Originally scheduled for release on October 15, 2010, the studio has pushed it forward to October 1 — presumably because the film would have had a hard time finding an audience in an increasingly crowded October. Personally, I'm excited because it means we're that much closer to seeing Jesse Eisenberg play Mark Zuckerberg.
